Call for papers: IRE-2002

                                                          2nd Workshop on
                                      Intermediate Representation Engineering
                                                      for Virtual Machines

                                            Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland
                                                            June 13-14, 2002

                                  An associated workshop of the conference on
                            Principles and Practice of Programming in Java[TM]

                          Workshop web page:

The widespread use of Java[TM] technology has given increased prominence to
the study of portable intermediate representation formats, particularly
those similar to the stack-based design of the Java Virtual Machine. While
much attention has been given to performance issues, it is also important to
consider the design of JVM bytecode in the light of its relationship to to
its ancestors, such as Forth, as well as more recent competitors such as the
Microsoft .NET framework.

This workshop seeks to explore issues relating to the design and engineering
of intermediate representations. We are interested in position papers,
work-in-progress reports and synopses of current research.

Topics of interest include:

      * design and analysis of intermediate representations
      * static and/or dynamic analysis of Java bytecode
      * stack-based abstract machines
      * optimisation strategies
      * alternative intermediate representations
      * benchmarking and test suites

Papers covering related areas and systems (such as Forth, Oberon, C# etc.)
will also be considered.

It is intended to run the event in true workshop style, so authors should
expect to discuss their proposals for 20-25 minutes in total, allowing time
for interaction and questions.


Authors should submit a 3-5 page extended abstract (Postscript or PDF
format) to, to arrive not later than April 1 2002.

Papers will be reviewed for relevance, and the authors will be contacted
with feedback within two weeks of the submission date.
